History of the All & Everything Conference
A Congenial Meeting of the “Companions of the Book”
Annie Lou Staveley became very interested in and supportive of the conference, encouraging her own contacts to participate, although the infirmities of age meant that she would not be able to attend. She felt strongly that Gurdjieff's written works under the overall title All and Everything and especially the First Series, Beelzebub's Tales to His Grandson, could serve as a basis of commonality for Gurdjieff students from diverse backgrounds to come together. Her opposition to the ill-advised 1992 revised English translation of the Tales (since withdrawn from circulation), led her in 1993 to republish the original 1950 English translation that had been approved by Gurdjieff, but which by this time had gone out of print.
